Running of the Gnomes, Race for a Cure!
2010/10/02 at 10:22 PM
Noxy here! I don't write many blog posts, but I was linked
by a friend, and I fell in love with the idea.
I'm standing here in Booty Bay, surrounded by lots and lots of little pink gnomes all gathered for the same cause: to support the fight against Breast Cancer.
SeeD is an Alliance side guild on Scarlet Crusade-US, and last year they decided to turn their tabards pink, and post around on the forums letting people know and encouraging them to remind the ladies in their lives to speak to their doctors, and to show how much they care. This year they have organised a fun-run--for each pink gnome that shows, SeeD members have pledged to donate various amounts of money to the Susan G Komen Foundation.
At the peak they reached a total of 160 gnomes, with an estimated $200+ raised. (and thats just the guilds officers! the final total is still yet to be tallied!)

Blizzard Withdrawing RealID Plan for Official Forums
2010/07/09 at 12:19 PM
In a statement released today, Blizzard says that they have decided against using RealID to identify forum users on the official forums. Blizzard
that they were moving to a forum system where everyone was identified by their real names. Citing user feedback, they've decided that it was not in the best interests of the community to move forward with that plan.
The statement (seen below) was written by Blizzard's CEO, by Mike Morhaime. It was posted on the forum by Nethaera.
I'd like to take some time to speak with all of you regarding our desire to make the Blizzard forums a better place for players to discuss our games. We've been constantly monitoring the feedback you've given us, as well as internally discussing your concerns about the use of real names on our forums. As a result of those discussions, we've decided at this time that real names will not be required for posting on official Blizzard forums.
It's important to note that we still remain committed to improving our forums. Our efforts are driven 100% by the de
Wowhead Comic #22

Wow, its been a while, hm?
With all this commotion about possibly the most wonderful thing to ever happen to this game (in my opinion), I thought its a good time as any to make a comic about how ridiculous I find all the flame and troll wars.
I have been waiting for a
flying pony mount
for such a long time, and now not only does my main character get to have one, but ALL OF MY TOONS! And all levels of riding skill! Happiest day of my life. Kinda. ... I really like ponies. And sparkly things.
I threw together some wallpaper versions of the comic for you guys. :3
1920 x 1200
1920 x 1080
1280 x 1024
Note: The lyrics are from an
all-time favourite song
of mine, that most of you will probably recognise as the Ro

Happy Midsummer Fire Festival, everyone!
Uh, nevermind. I'm a bit late for that now. Oh well! Its done at least.
Here's a Festival comic written by our lovely
. She raised the technicalities relating to the quests to
of the other factions main cities. So you've taken a flame, great! How? On a stick? And even then, where do you keep it, to stop it going out on your rush back to hand it into the NPC?
How about in your pocket? Well, that wouldn't be very safe now, would it? Your clothes would catch on fire..
Apologies again for the lack of comics lately, I've been incredibly busy, and I still don't have a full time comic writer!
Reminder: If you have any short WoW related comic scripts, or any comic ideas, please dont be afraid to mail them to me via
, I do read them all, even if I dont have the time to draw them all!
Edit: Yes. Miyari is wearing Horde-Boxer-S

Better late then never, eh?

Keep the comic scripts coming guys! I'm still sifting through the emails but the ones I've received so far are pretty promising and I'll try to draw up those that really jump out at me with awesomeness.
More ramblings to come after the break...
Pretty Picture Filler Week!
2009/05/18 at 12:32 PM
As you may have noticed, I've been slacking with the comics. There are a couple reasons behind this, but its mainly due to me being eye-bleedingly busy. I've been using the days I allocate each week for Wowhead, to work on
badge images for the wonderful
I will be drawing these for other staff members in the near future, and for those that want to commission me for similar badge-art as above, they will be available soon. I'll add some information about it in a future post.
The other reason for a decrease in comic numbers, is a lack of scripts. I no longer have a full-time writer to make them for me, and I'm having terrible writer's block!
So if any of you out there have any ideas for short, simple, and funny WoW-related comic script, please feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Who knows...it might get used!
